The apartment is situated in Maia Praia, Lagos Portugal just 10 minutes walking distance from the beach and town. The apart block has only 24 units with a private pool. My casa has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and fully fitted kitchen TV /Wifi / air con.
My apartment is unique in that it is on the 1st floor of a 24 apartment block and has direct access to the swimming pool from my private patio area. There is access control at the main entrance door and a lift adjacent to the front door of my apartment which is ideal for elderly people and people with restricted mobility.
My guests will have access to ground floor parking which is accessed controlled. They have access to the two pools which are on the 1st floor and very convenient from my place.
Interaction with guests
I have been renting this apartment for the last number of years and most of my clients are regular and loyal customers. I have one client who is in her mid eighties who she has never missed a year during that period. I have a very reliable agent who will meet my guests on arrival and look after their every need.. N.B. There is an extra charge of 30 Euro for booking in after 8 pm which is paid directly to my agent on arrival at the apartment.
Other things to note
There are numerous beaches in the locality which are world famous. The town itself is steeped in history and the 1st slave trade in Europe commenced in Lagos in 1400. The Portuguese were a great sea faring nation and many of their expeditions originated from Lagos. There is a beautiful marina in the town which is overlooked by a number of restaurants which are within 5 minutes walking distance from my place.
I would ask my guests to respect my apartment and leave it as they find it. I do not allow pets and smokers can use the private patio area to enjoy a smoke which is covered.

I am 60 yrs of age and recently retired from the Civil Service in Ireland. I enjoy all aspects of life but particularly traveling over to my apartment in the Algarve where I can relax and unwind and soak up the sunshine. The peace and tranquility of the area is something special and has to be experienced. My place is within 12 minutes walking distance from the center of the town of Lagos and the same distance from Maia Praia beach regarded as being one of the top ten beaches in Europe. An early morning walk along this beach as the sun rises is something to behold. The town of Lagos in the western Algarve is completely unspoiled with its unique cobbled streets and historic buildings. There are no high rise apartment blocks and the people are polite and welcoming. The numerous restaurants and cafes provide high quality food at very reasonable prices and fresh fish can be bought in the fish market on a daily basis. If you visit the Algarve you must visit Lagos
